Ricky Ponting vs ENGLAND (2005)

Football News

A dismissal that left the Australian captain fuming and frustrated in equal measure, as England closed in on their first Ashes victory in almost a generation. In the fourth Test of
the 2005 series, Ricky Ponting was going strongly on 48 and was left red-faced when Damien Martyn attempted a quick single to short extra cover.

Substitute fielder, Gary Pratt, was the man who successfully completed the pick-up and throw, leaving the Aussie captain just short of the crease. Believing that the opposition had been utilising their 12th man a little too often to rest bowlers, Ponting shouted at the England dressing room as he ascended the Trent Bridge pavilion steps.

Following on, Australia needed all of the runs they could muster to set Michael Vaughan’s
side a competitive total to chase. Consequently England would go on to complete their chase of 129 in the final innings, handing them a 2-1 series lead with one match left to play.
